OSC Great Conversations: Explore the Universe with Gravitational Waves

Unpack the fabric of space-time with Dr. Rainer Weiss’ exploration of gravitational waves in the era of multi-messenger astronomy. This ground-breaking discovery earned Dr. Weiss the 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics, along with his work on the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. Discover what colliding black holes and neutron stars have in common and how major gravitational forces ripple through the universe at the speed of light. The "Charles Darrow Lecture Series" is a collaboration between the RASC - Toronto Centre and the Ontario Science Centre.
